Levels of Care

Mental health treatment is not a one-size-fits-all situation. At La Amistad, we are proud to offer multiple levels of care to meet our patients where they are. We provide comprehensive treatment at every stage of the mental health journey, from residential and partial hospitalization to intensive outpatient programs.

La Amistad Behavioral Health Levels of Care

Our residential, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs are designed to provide varying degrees of support and structure. Each program serves a distinct purpose. The appropriate level of care depends on the severity of an individual’s condition and their specific treatment needs as recommended by healthcare professionals.

We offer programs for adolescents and adults dealing with mental health and substance use disorders.

Residential Program

The highest level of care La Amistad offers is our residential program. This treatment option involves 24/7 supervised treatment and accommodation within our residential facility. Individuals who enter this type of program typically present with severe mental health or substance use challenges that require intensive and constant support. Residential programs offer a highly structured environment in which patients can focus solely on their recovery.

Key features of this program include:

  • Round-the-clock medical and therapeutic support
  • Regular individual and group therapy sessions
  • Psychiatric evaluation and medication management
  • A safe and controlled environment
  • Focus on building coping skills and relapse prevention

Partial Hospitalization Program

A partial hospitalization program is step down from the residential level of care. It involves intense treatment during the day but allows patients to return home to a supportive living environment in the evening. This type of program is suitable for individuals who need structured treatment but don’t require constant supervision. It is often used as a transitional step after completing a residential program or as an alternative to round-the-clock care.

Key features of this program include:

  • Daytime treatment with therapeutic activities and counseling
  • Medication monitoring and psychiatric services
  • Supportive services tailored to individual needs
  • Flexibility to return home outside program hours

Intensive Outpatient Program

An intensive outpatient program is the lowest commitment level of care we offer at La Amistad. This is designed for individuals who require regular treatment but can live at home in a stable environment. These programs offer greater flexibility in scheduling, allowing patients to resume daily activities while attending treatment sessions. Intensive outpatient programs are often used as a step down from partial hospitalization or as an initial treatment option for those with mild conditions.

Key features of this program include:

  • Structured treatment three hour sessions three times a week
  • Group therapy sessions
  • Individual counseling and support
  • Focus on relapse prevention and coping strategies
  • Encouragement of family involvement
